Damn you Mr Smithy and your entertainingly difficult teasers, well done. :D

Thank you both! I'm glad the link isn't too obscure to be of interest.

Not in a million years would I have come up with the answer. :-?

Not a chance I would have ever come up with that one! Interesting factoid though, I try to learn at least one piece of "useless knowledge" every day.. Thanks this will work!

Fun teaser! Interesting facts, Francium is the only element that is named after the country who's TLD that it shares it symbol. Indium matches India's TLD, but it was technically named after its indigo blue spectral line instead of the country. Europium comes close in that it shares its symbol with the European Union (although they technically aren't a countries). :)

I couldn't figure this one out while sitting in Chemistry class with a periodic table on the wall opposite me. :) Maybe next time.

several days back I commented that that puzzle was the worst I have seen for aecane information and no help clue I had EVER seen , And I was right....Until today They should have "thumbs" instead of emotiocons for rating this :( :( 8) 8)

I don't think it's "arcane", just obscure. Thanks to those that found it interesting, especially elentir for the extra info!
